Behind all of the disheartening statistics found in the current for-profit system are real people, enduring pain and suffering that should be unacceptable in the wealthiest country on earth

Early in this new year, Rep. Pramilla Jayapal (D-Wa.) will be introducing an updated version of a House Medicare for All bill, buttressed by the election in November of a number of new Medicare for all House candidates. Re-introduction of a Senate bill by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is also expected soon.

Polls show growing national support, as much as 70 percent, 85 percent among Democrats, and even a majority of Republicans, for a publicly financed, guaranteed health care solution. Those numbers, which reflect widespread public anxiety over a dysfunctional health care system, and the election of more Medicare for All supporters, have spawned the formation of an alarmed industry sponsored effort to block the single payer movement.

Come learn why National Nurses United (NNU) supports Medicare for All.

National Nurses United, with more than 150,000 members nationwide, is the largest union and professional association of registered nurses in U.S. history.
